Comedian Alan Davies has sparked further outrage after posting a link to a "Scouser" fancy dress costume days after he said Liverpool should be able to play on April 15, the Hillsborough Disaster anniversary.

In response to the anger on Twitter over his comments, the QI and Jonathan Creek star said he "needed a disguise" for going out and posted an image of an outfit based on a character from Harry Enfield and Chums.

The response to his tweet was mixed, with one person saying:

Davies has come under fire after he suggested that it was unfair on Chelsea - who play in the Champions League next Wednesday - that Liverpool would not play their FA Cup semi-final on April 15.

Instead, Liverpool will play their game against Everton a day earlier on April 14 so it does not clash with the anniversary of the Hillsborough Disaster.

Many disagree but I feel that the Liverpool v Everton semi-final could be played on Apr 15. Apologies to those upset by that suggestion.

I said the Hillsborough disaster was the worst event in modern peacetime history. I was on a terrace listening to a radio as it happened.

Since the comedian's comment on the Arsenal podcast, The Tuesday Club - who have publicly apologised several times - Davies has been subjected to abuse and death threats online.

The television comic has apologised for "being insensitive" and reiterated his "support" for the Justice For 96 campaign.

I can't reply to all the tweets on this subject, only reiterate my support for the Justice For 96 campaign & apologise for being insensitive

The Hillsborough Justice Campaign rejected a £1000 donation from Davies following the outcry.
